Peer Mentor Learning Community (PMLC)

What is the Peer Mentor Learning Community?

Welcome to the Peer Mentor Learning Community (PMLC) program!  The PMLC program is offered jointly by Accessibility Services and the Robert Gillespie Academic Skills Centre (RGASC) to support student learning and student community among those registered with Accessibility.  Through interactive workshops, social events, study support groups, and mentoring programs, PMLC engages students in building academic skills and fostering connection.
 

Delivery Mode

PMLC events will be delivered in-person (UTM campus) during the Fall 2023 and Winter 2024 semesters.
 

Eligibility

All UTM students who self-identify as having a disability are welcome to attend our PMLC workshops and social events. 
One-on-one mentoring is reserved for students registered with UTM Accessibility Services.
